Yearling & Age Advantage

83 Bulls


A Welcome from the Nelsons, Tom, Warren, Brent and their families want to join in an invitation to attend their annual sale and take advantage of their many years of experience building profitable genetics that work for you instead of you working for them. Over the years, Nelson Livestock has solidified its reputation for no-nonsense, hard working cows that calve easily and last for years even in the toughest environments. Just as importantly Nelson bulls produce calves that grow fast and efficiently and then provide added satisfaction to the beef industry and consumers with added marbling and red meat yield. The sale date has changed this year and now will be April 19 in Baker MT. This change was made to better fit the needs and wishes of their customers by being closer to the time of year they actually need bulls and in hopes of better spring weather. Just as importantly it allows the Nelsons to continue to develop the bulls the right way with no creep feed, a more rumen friendly development diet and greater focus on traits that affect the longevity of the bulls they market. We know you will appreciate the change and the quality of the bulls. Allied is pleased to be working with a reputation outfit that offers reputation bulls from a proven cowherd. That’s what you know you can always expect from the Nelsons. You’ll find no easier folks to work with and no more complete warranty on bulls than you’ll find here. Feel free to contact any of the Nelson family to arrange a pre-sale visit to the ranch.

See you Sale Day

• Outcross Purebred genetics are highly sought after these days and 3A provides just that with quality. Unfortunately these outcross genetics rarely come with a top 3% ranking for Birth Weight EPD, nearly 100 lbs. of YW EPD and an API in the top 10% of the breed like he does. To add to his value, he is a moderate sized, wide based tank with bone and structure end-to-end. If the ultrasound data comes back in his favor, he will be one for breeders to watch or own!

• Balanced performance with extra muscle and width, 131 weaned off at a 107 ratio and is physically one of the most pleasing bulls in the sale. Lots of balance and eye appeal with a thick top and hip, we hope you will appreciate him as one of the most attractive of the higher percentage bulls. He too should be one of the easiest calving bulls (+15.8 CE EPD) in the offering.

• This is one of the youngest calves in the sale, but you will barely notice it. We decided it was important to offer him because of his unrivaled performance and unique pedigree. His individual weaning ratio was 124 and his adjusted weight was 812 after starting life at a reasonable 80 pounds. He currently ranks in the top 1% of the Simmental breed for weaning and yearling weight genetics as well as for the TI $ value index. You’ll appreciate the way he looks too!

• DDF • 17A is an outcross red growth bull in a right sized package proving cattle don’t have to be big framed to weigh a lot. You will be impressed sale day with his depth of rib, structural soundness and his easy going attitude too. Out of an Becton Epic 2-year-old female, he weaned off with a ratio of 106.

To go with all that thickness, this Alumni son is wonderful on the profile, level topped and extremely clean sheathed. His 2-year-old Dual Focus dam weaned him off at a 104 ratio and he has done nothing but continue to perform at a high level ever since.

With a 113 weaning ratio and a smooth, soft look from the side, he combines performance with sound structure and type as well as any bull in the sale. 25A will no doubt add marbling and rib eye to your program plus his daughters should really be productive as he ranks in the top 10% of all SimAngus bulls for both Maternal Calving Ease and Milk genetics.

• Being tested for homozygous black (BB) • This might be our most valuable fall bull and traces back to many of our most treasured genetics. Out of the outcross NLC Break Free bull raised here and now at ABS and tracing back to our great foundation cow M28 (LG 140) now at J/C Simmental in MI, he has the background to bring both profit and maximum function to the his new owners. The fall bulls are roughed from weaning around here to help insure maximum life and function, but our customers really like their extra age and first year service capacity.

• Being tested for homozygous polled (PP) • This bull was just a little younger than we wanted to offer last year with our earlier sale, but we liked he and his pedigree enough to keep him around to market this year. 119Z is sired by WBF Stetson and out of one of our most productive older Shear Force cows who has raised 9 calves with an average ratio of 110. The maternal grand dam (G64 Galix) is also the dam of NLC Fortunate Son. Solid, profitable genetics all the way back and he is sound and muscular to boot.


QUICK GUIDE to ASA EPDs and $ INDEXES Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs): EPDs are the most accurate and effective tool available for comparing genetic levels. In using EPDs, the difference between two sires’ EPDs represents the unit difference expected in the performance of their progeny. For example, if sires A and B have EPDs of +10 and –5, a 15-unit difference would be expected in their progeny (moving from -5 to +10 yields 15 units). Key to using EPDs is knowing what units they are expressed in. For example, if the above case referred to weaning weight EPDs, A would be expected to sire 15-pounds more weaning weight than B. If calving ease were the trait, A would be expected to sire 15-percent more unassisted births in first-calf heifers; in other words, if B sired 30 assists in a group of 100 heifers, we’d expect A to require 15 assists. A percentile-ranking chart is required to determine where a bull’s EPDs rank him relative to other bulls in the breed. For percentile rankings or more detailed information about EPDs and $ indexes visit www.simmental.org. Listed below are the units ASA EPDs are expressed in: • All-Purpose Index (API): Dollars per cow exposed under an all-purpose-sire scenario. • Back Fat (BF): Inches of backfat. • Birth Weight (BW): Pounds of birth weight. • Calving Ease (CE): Percent of unassisted births when used on heifers. • Carcass Weight (CW): Pounds of carcass weight. • Maternal Calving Ease (MCE): Percent of unassisted births in first-calving daughters. • Milk (MLK): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk. • Marbling (MRB): Marbling score. • Maternal Weaning Weight (MWW): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk and growth. • Ribeye Area (REA): Square inches of ribeye. • Warner-Bratzler Shear Force (WBSF): Pounds of force required to shear a steak. • Stayability (STAY): Percent of daughters remaining in the cowherd at 6 years of age. • Terminal Index (TI): Dollars per cow exposed under a terminal-sire scenario. • Weaning Weight (WW): Pounds of weaning weight. • Yearling Weight (YW): Pounds of yearling weight. • Yield Grade (YG): Yield grade score. $ Indexes: Though EPDs allow for the comparison of genetic levels for many economically important traits, they only provide a piece of the economic puzzle. That’s where $ indexes come in. Through well-conceived, rigorous mathematical computation, $ indexes blend EPDs and economics to estimate an animal’s overall impact on your bottom line. The same technology that led to the dramatic progress in swine, poultry and dairy genetics over the last several decades was used to develop the following $ indexes: • All-Purpose Index (API): Evaluates sires for use on the entire cow herd (bred to both Angus first-calf heifers and mature cows) with the portion of their daughters required to maintain herd size retained and the remaining heifers and steers put on feed and sold grade and yield. • Terminal Index (TI): Evaluates sire for use on mature Angus cows with all offspring put on feed and sold grade and yield. Using API and TI: First, determine which index to use; if you’re keeping replacements use API, if not, TI. Then, just as with EPDs, zero in on the unit difference between bulls. (As described above, index units are in dollars per cow exposed.) The difference can be used to determine how much a bull is worth compared to another. Or, put another way, how much you can pay for one bull compared to another. For example, when buy¬ing an all-purpose-type sire, you can quickly figure a bull scoring +100 for API is worth an extra $6,000 over a+50 bull if both are exposed to 30 cows over 4 years ($50 diff. x 30 hd. x 4 yr. = $6,000). A percentile-ranking chart is required to determine where a bull’s index value ranks him relative to other bulls in the breed. For percentile rankings or more detailed information about EPDs and $ indexes, visit www.simmental.org
